The worst player in the history of Liverpool FC hopes to become President of his country
Could Donald Trump soon be the world's second least popular world leader? El-Hadji Diouf has big, big plans.
If you want to see a Liverpool fan spit, just mention the name El-Hadji Diouf, a man who himself is no stranger to the oral evacuation of his bodily fluids.
Just ask those Celtic fans.
He was a nasty piece of work, spending a couple of controversy-filled seasons at Anfield from 2002 before spells at Blackburn, Leeds, Bolton and Rangers among others.
Well, the 37-year-old wants to follow in the footsteps of George Weah - who became President of Liberia last year - and become an example to the youngsters of the Senegalese nation.
"I am looking after myself and my family. For many years I use to think about football but I have a new career and it is a political career," he said.
"I have taken the decision to do politics because I have people waiting for me to change things in my country and I'm ready to do that because I want to be the soldier of the youngsters.
"My future is defined. In the next two years I'll be joining politics, because I know from that point I can change a lot in football. I have a lot of passion for politics, and I have people in Senegal who are mentoring me. That is the future for me, because a lot of Senegalese people are able to listen to me."
Senegal's gain is coaching's - and football's - loss as Diouf has decided against a career in training young footballers to go wherever the ball isn't and taunt injured opponents.
"I took high-level coaching courses, but decided not to continue since I have better plans for things I want to do."
Senegal, our hopes and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
